    The office supply guy came to our office last

    week. For some reason he decided to leave a few candy bars there on the table in the lunch room; first come, first served. I happened to be there, eating lunch, so I took one. I'm normally not that interested in candy bars - they're a little ubersweet, to be honest - but they...

    We're like magnets..Think rubbish = rubbish….

    whatever you believe would lead to action which leads to outcomes…generally…sometimes things happens and we cannot explain…the mystery of LIFE. It's how you engage that is the deciding factor.

    I believe everything happens

    for a reason. People change so you can learn how to let go. Things go wrong, so that you can appreciate them when they're right. You believe lies, so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.

    This year, I tried a new type of schooling.

    It soon became apparent that my phobias were growing and that I was feeling anxiety. My mindset has changed so much just through the last few months, and I do realize that these events were important in my life. I've heard a quote from somewhere, that goes like this: "You don't...

    Everything has a purpose,

    everything is here for a reason. The thing is, do you know what it is? Would you believe and accept it if someone could tell you what it is? Are you sure absolutely what you already believe about everything having a reason to exist in what happens? Because I know what it is.

    Respectfully, I don't believe everything happens

    for a reason. I don't believe in coincidences, but neither do I believe that everything happens for a reason. I DO believe in synchronicity--which allows us the free will to choose--always--in everything, and those choices attract synchronous energy. For example, believing...

    Today is like every other day. I board the train quickly-can't be late. I choose a seat near the back. Few sit there. The light is broken, but that's fine. I don't need a light today. Alone I sit, lost in my thoughts, swirling, swirling. ..A slight noise startles me back to...

    I truly do. Everything is a part of

    who you are. Even people coming into your life or crossing paths. There can even be those rare people you meet and have an instant connection and very deep bond and feelings for very quickly. One person can alter and change your life for the better.

    No matter what happens,
